MAC KELLAR. 1907, President of Barnswallows; BARNSWALLOW RECEPTION In spite of the rain on Saturday evening, October sixth, half- past seven saw the Barn apparently full, and streams of girls hurrying from all directions towards the center of attraction, the first Barnswal- lows' reception. Miss Marguerite Mac- Kellar. President of the Barnswallows. Dean Pendleton, and Miss Davis stood in front of the stage receiving the long line of new students. Before the dancing began. Miss MacKel- lar came forward to give to the Class of 19 1 o its first welcome to the Barn, and to give to the other classes the welcome they had long learned to expect. Miss Mac- Kellar began by saying that she felt very much like the country minister who, re- turning from a long absence, told his con- gregation that it gave him a great and pe- culiar happiness to see so many of the good old faces he used to shake hands with. She spoke of the pleasure it was for the Barnswallows to crowd closer together in the nest to make room for the new brood. iqio will learn to love the Barn, too, like the rest of the college, and to wish that every night was a Barnswallow night, like the little boy who wished that every day in the year was a pot of jam. The only unoptimistic moments the Barnswallows ever have, come when they realize that they are not permitted the sight of a swallow-tail at their dances. V. Kellar closed her welcome by sayirg that as it takes more than one swallow to make a summer, it takes a great many more than one Barnswallow to make a win- ter. Mis? MacKellar was followed by Dean Pendleton, who began by saying that she was glad that there was standing room in the Barn if no other. Miss MacKellar's story reminded Miss Pendleton of another little boy who complained that it was al- ways "Jam vesterday. jam to-morrow, but never jam to-day." In this case, how- ever, she said that it was surely jam to- night. Miss Pendleton then said that the Barnswallows were designed to bring care- free enthusiasm to all work at Wellesley. The Barn is the one place where we forget all academic distinction, whether we have been at college one year or twenty. Miss Pendleton closed by bidding all a cordial welcome to the Barnswallows. Miss Davis, following Miss Pendleton, said that although the Student Govern- ment and the Christian Associations are important parts of Wellesley, yet the Barnswallow organization is foremost, for it is open to all students and is the most democratic. Miss Davis spoke of Miss MacKellar as a worthy successor of Miss Hart. 1904, Miss Knight. 1905. and Miss Segar. 1906, and added that most im- portant of all she was a fledgling from the Xoanett. After the addresses, the Wellesley cheer was given for the Barnswallows. Mar- guerite MacKellar, Dean Pendleton. Miss Davis, and 19 10. Those who could find room danced in the center, while the less venturesome promenaded around the outskirts. Annual Meeting of the Student Government Association. The annual meeting of the Wellesley Student Government Association was held at 4.15. P.M.. Friday. October 5, 1906, in College Kail r " ..pel T j« presided. The meeting opened with prayer by Miss Ruth French. President of the Christian Association. The minutes of the previous meeting were read and approved. Miss Besse mentioned the facts that the seal is an alumnae pin and may not be worn by undergraduates until after mid- years of their Senior year, and that the students of Wellesley College consider it a point of honor to give no information to any newspaper reporters who are not members of the college, but to refer them to the proper authorities. The President also spoke of the noise in chapel and of the reverent attitude which we. as college women, should maintain during the services in chapel. Miss Besse announced that she had re- ceived a telegram from Sallie Eustis wishing success to the Association and promising her loyalty to it. The constitution of the Women's In- tercollegate Association for Student Government was read. It was moved that the delegates sent to Baltimore be impowered to accept this constitution as read. The motion was seconded and carried. It was moved that the nominations for the second representative to the Conference at Baltimore be made by ac- clamation and one formal ballot be cast. The nominations were Misses Betsey Baird. Elizabeth Perot. Margaret Ladd and Ethel Grant. The motion was made, seconded and carried that nominations be closed. A formal ballot was taken resulting in the election of Miss Grant. The next business was the election of the leader of the Fire Brigade. It was moved, seconded and carried that nomina- tions be made by acclamation and that one formal ballot be cast. The nomina- tions were Misses Margaret Ladd, Alice Bradt, Gladys Tuttle, Alice Rossington, Isabel Simmons, and Gertrude Cate. It was moved, seconded and carried that nominations be closed. A formal ballot was taken resulting in the election of Miss Cate. After the reading of the agreement between the Faculty and students con- cerning Student Government, the Con- stitution and the By-Laws, Miss Besse spoke as follows : — In September, 1901. when the first Student Government president. Frances Hughes made her address before the Associ- ation, she said, "It is to be an established custom of the Student Government Association that its members assemble in an annual Fall meeting for the purpose of having brought home to them in a very real way the obligations of membership." It is for that, that we are gathered to- gether here to-day. — for the purpose of having brought home to us the obligations of membership. We all know what those obligations are, girls. — the obligation to prove our- selves individually capable of self-govern- ment, and so to maintain together the high ideals for which this Association was founded. That laws are necessary to the life of every body of people, especially to the life of a community of 1. 100 is a r ivh pr -vperience. That to succeed it is absolutely necessary for each member to obev the community laws is a fact as well established, a fact which we should never lose sight of in our college life. But our Association should be more than this; more than a law making, more even than a law keeping body. You have just heard the agreement and re- member the opening words: "Whereas the Students of Wellesley desire to as- sume individual and community responsi- bility for the conduct of students in their college life, and whereas, it is believed that such responsibility, if given to the students, will make for growth in character and power, and will promote loyalty to the best interests of the college." It is this at which we aim. — growth in character and power, and the promotion of loyalty to the best interests of the college. That our Association not only should but does mean this is the experience of every girl who has ever worked for and in Student Government. It is for this that we love the Association, that we most gladly pledge our loyalty, our strength, all that is in us, for the life of Student Government. It has been said that this is a critical year because of the absence of our Presir dent and because now there are no girls in college who were here when our own government was established. It is criti- cal, but that very fact offers a great op- portunity. Xow it is our privilege to make it. even with its disadvantage which will stand out in the history of the college as no other year, except per- haps 1901, that first year, has stood out. To do it we must work together, shoulder to shoulder: we must meet the difficulties in union and conquer them, confident of the unanimous support of the Associa- (Continued on page 3) COLLEGE NEWS College IRews.

Mass., under the Act of Congress, March 3, 1879." For us here at college, New Year's day, so far as the making of new resolutions is concerned, comes with the reopening of classes in October. We look backward upon the preceding year and see quite clearly where we made our mistakes. In looking forward to a whole new year, we decide to turn over a "new leaf;" and make noble resolutions about the things that we will and will not do. Then, with these good resolves, we take our plunge into the great whirlpool of work and fun which make up our "college life." When the real New Year comes and friends at home are making good resolu- tions, we, too, are reminded of our own good intentions, and stop to think for a moment. Then when mid- years have come and gone, and we are about to settle down to regular work again, we find our second great New Year's day at hand. With the memory of our recent examinations fresh in mind, we resolve once more to reach a better standard during the coming half year, but with the exception of the slight attention we may give to the matter at the beginning of the third term, most of us work along in about the same dilatory way until June. Then, of course, we hurry eagerly home with little thought of aca- This space reserved for LONG, 41 Summer St., Boston WELLESLEY COLLEGE SEAL FOBS AND PINS, In French Gray and Rose Gold.

Usually during the sum- mer vacation we do not trouble ourselves much about the work of the next year — provided that our credit cards have been fairly satisfactory. October comes again, and with it comes the remaking of the same old resolutions; for we acknowl- edge that we have not succeeded in keep- ing them during the year just past much better than we did the year before. Now this does not apply to every one in college, nor it is so much in most important matters that we have this failing. It does apply, however, to a great many of us in re- gard to our resolutions about the many little things where the sum total makes such a difference. As there is no great advantage in making new resolutions so easy to keep that we would never need to break them, we usually find that we have to remake our really worth-while resolves. It ought not to be necessary, however, to start back at the very point from which we began. Resolutions regularly made and as regu- larly broken; standards — and standards not so high as to be unattainable — con- tinually set but habitually fallen far short of, leave their marks upon our char- acters. Why is it that we so often fail in carry- ing out the good plans which we periodi- cally make? Probably the simplest reason lies in the fact that it is only periodically that we make them and then we cease to pay much attention to them. Whatever the length of intervening time may be, it is natural to feel that new periods in the college calendar are times for making new resolutions. Now if we are going to make any progress, the beginning of a new period in the year ought not to be the time when we take down our ideals from a dusty shelf, glance at them hurried- ly, and rush on. It should rather be an occasion when we may raise our ideals, be- cause, in the season just past, we have come near enough to our old standards to see something beyond and wish for something far better. It is not that we have no time to think of this matter, but that we do not realize the necessity of occasionally taking time to think seriously of where we are and where we want to be, nor do we perceive the yet greater need of spending every day and every moment of the day in trying our best to reach the desired goal. It is only thus that we can save ourselves the loss of self respect which is sure to come with the habitually broken resolution. NOTICES.

The first meeting of the Running Club was held October 2 The club had its first regular call-out on Wednesday afternoon, October 3. 1 908 turned out a full squad, and 1909, although crippled by the non-return of two of its members, made up in enthusiasm what it lacked in numbers. Miss Florence Besse, President of the Student Government Association, Miss Olive Smith, Vice-President of the Student Government Association, and Miss Roma Nickerson, Vice- President of the Christian Association, addressed the new stu- dents on Wednesday afternoon, October 3, in College Hall Chapel. On Wednesday evening, October 3, the Sophomore Class gave the usual serenade to the Freshmen. The long line of girls in white with their gay Japanese lanterns was very effective. The first regular mid-week prayer meeting of the Wellesley College Christian Association was held in College Hall Chapel on Thursday evening, October 4. Miss Pendleton, the speaker of the evening, took for her text the eighth verse of the third chapter of Revelations — "Behold, I have set before thee an open door and no man can shut it." To this was added the verse from John X of the Good Shepherd and the sheep. These verses, the best guides for the opening of the college year, show the new opportunity which each year brings to us, whether for the first time here, or not. This door, open to each one, no one can close even through misuse or disuse. The figure of Christ, Himself the door, is very simple to comprehend, and hard to withstand. Though the opening may lead to failure, we yet gain knowledge, though it may lead to sorrow, it yet teaches love and life, and always brings opportunity for development and service. If we enter, with Christ as guide, we shall always find a promise of more abundant life, supported by the Faith in Christ. The Seniors, in cap and gowns, gathered on the South Porch of College Hall at half-past nine on Thursday evening, October 4, to serenade their President, Miss Gladys Doten, in honor of her birthday. Mr. Harry Wade Hicks, an officer of the Young People's Missionary Union of Greater Boston, gave an address upon "Bible and Mission Study" in Billings Hall, at 4 o'clock, on Sunday afternoon, October 7. Mr. Hicks is well known to the college students who attended the Silver Bay conference. Miss Laura Townsend, formerly of 1908, is teaching school in El Paso, Texas. At vespers on Sunday evening, October 7, an address was made by Mr. John W. Wood, secretary of the Episcopal Mission Board. The subject was, "The Call of Present Opportunity." Miss Mary T. Noss, 1909, is studying in Paris this winter. She will return to Wellesley next year to complete her college course. Her address is, care of Mme. de Kerilly, 63 Boulevard St. Michel, Paris. On Thursday evening October ,11, the prayer meeting of the Christian Association will be led by Miss Ruth French. The subject is "The Lordship of Jesus Christ." Everyone is cor- dially invited to be present. Several members of the Department of French have re- turned from a summer abroad and all report delightful expe- riences and pleasant weather throughout.

THE WELLESLEY ORCHESTRA. Dear College News: Freshmen and new students will be interested to know that we are now starting an orchestra for Wellesley College. The responses to a letter written last year were instant and gratify- ing. We have already applications from several violins, a 'cello and (mirabile dictu!) a double bass. Will not some student volunteer to learn the cornet or clarinet or flute for Alma Mater? We at Music Hall will gladly furnish rooms for practice. Can any student at Wellesley give us one satisfactory reason why Vassar and Smith should have large and fine orchestras, and Wellesley none? Mr. Foster, Room 13, Music Hall, the Direct- or, will be glad to confer with all interested. Yours for progress, H. C. Macdougall. RESOLUTION OF THE SOPHOMORE CLASS. At a meeting of the Class of 1909, held Thursday, October 4, the following resolution was adopted: Whereas — The college at large is opposed to any further demonstration between the Freshmen and Sophomore Classes: And whereas — Such demonstration is considered detri- mental to the dignity of the college, Be it resolved — That we, the Class of 1909, disapprove of any further disturbance of this nature, and Be it resolved — That the Class of 1909 refuses to take part in any interference with the affairs of the Freshmen Class, and Be it further resolved — That a copy of this resolution be published in the College News. Signed. Amy M. Brown, President of 1909. (Continued from Page 1) Annual Meeting of the Student Government Association. tion. It may be hard, but it can and it must be done. We must make it a year of real self government, a year in which every day brings something more of loyalty and power to each girl, something more of effectiveness and success to the Association, a year of actual life and growth, such that at the end, when the classes from 1901 to 1906 come back they shall find that we have been worthy of our heritage, that we have in all things maintained the highest ideals of Student Government and of Wellesley. As there was no further business to come before the meet- ing, it was moved that the meeting adjourn. The motion was seconded and carried. The meeting adjourned. Respectfully submitted, Ethel V.

I. During the two years and some odd months that the writer has spent at college, there has been a gradual change in the attitude of the students as a whole toward Student Govern- ment. This change is not very great, nor as yet, very alarming, but there are straws winch show the direction of the wind. That the students are still loyal and faithful to Student Govern- ment there is no doubt, but that they are not absolutely satis- lied with everything in Student Government is suggested to anybody who has heard — as I think most of us have, — criti- cisms regarding certain minor rules. I have never heard a word against Student Government, nor do I think such a thing would be possible — but minor criticism of what pertains to Student Government is rather prevalent and will in the end bring it harm In trying to trace the causes of such dissatisfaction, I found, by following up these derogatory remarks with questions, that in every ease they were the result of a rule being applied to fit the letter of the law and not the spirit. Now all fair minded students realize the difficulties with which proctors and heads of houses have to contend. They realize also that the girls who are in such offices are trying conscientiously to fulfill their duties toward the students and the Student Government Asso- ciation. It is a fact of which to be proud that the enforcement ■ of rules here entails almost no personal feeling on either side. However, for this very reason the blame and the responsibility is shifted back to Student Government. To take a well-known example, a girl is "called up" for neglecting to put P.M. after her departure at 1.07. She may be careful to record the P.M. upon all occasions when there would be danger of ambiguity: the head of the house may understand this, but because some- time there might be a similar mistake which could not be so readily explained, the rules compel the head of the house to notice the omission. I can remember of being "called up," one February or March for putting the wrong year upon my slip. I believe that many a girl, however loyal she may be to Student Government, cherishes the memory of some similar offence. On the other hand, the argument of Student Government is both sane and reasonable : in so large a body, to make an ex- ception to a rule is to establish a difficult precedent ; the students make the rules; the students, therefore, should respect them. Now, in fact, the students do respect the rules. I believe that the objections made are due to the interpretations of the rules; and that this dissatisfaction is not given formal voice because such matters are too small and insignificant in themselves to be brought up in a Student Government meeting. The situation stands thus : there is a certain amount of complaint on common sense grounds against a too literal interpretation of Student Government rules. This dissatisfaction finds an outlet merely in idle talk, — talk that indirectly is doing the student organization harm. Now for the good of Student Government we all agree that a strict maintenance of the rules is necessary. Therefore, let us keep these rules, let us suppress grumbling over trivial matters, and, if there is dissatisfaction over things of real im- portance, let us bring it openly before the public. CROSS COUNTRY WALKING CLUB. The Cross Crountry Walking Club invites everyone interested in walking to try their long Monday walks, which began October 8. The time and place of meeting, with information as to the proposed walk, will be posted each week on the class boards. There is absolutely no red tape. Just walk enough each week to keep in condition and then come out for a good time on Monday. Don't miss the walks this beautiful fall weather. A. L. C.
